The prize for this year’s winner of the Google-sponsored Green Flight Challenge will total $1.65 million, the largest ever for the competition. NASA will pay the bill for the prize for the competition which requires participating teams to travel at least 200 miles in the air going at least 100 mph and reaching at least a 200 passenger miles per gallon level. A research and flight testing organization known as the CAFE Foundation (Comparative Aircraft Flight Efficiency) will conduct the event that will include several innovative aircrafts fueled by everything from electric power to biodiesel.
